Clive spent a full day with us touring the Cape Peninsula and another full day taking us to wine country. He also transported us to/from airport. During all that time, Clive provided personalized service, remained flexible (and patient), and allowed us to add an additional stop (his suggestion, Kirstenbosch Gardens, worth the time). Although we struggled with punctuality, he remained... More

They were so informative and personable. We enjoyed all their interesting stories and appreciated their willingness to share them. The three days we spent with them included, the... More

Clive is a highly professional tour guide who is a "walking encyclopedia!" He shared his extensive knowledge of the history and politics of South Africa, the cultures of the people, the identification of the flora and fauna, and the geography of the country. As a former teacher, he has the knack to engage his clients in continuous learning experiences. As... More

We spent 2 of our 4 days in Cape Town with Clive. We did the Cape of Good Hope Tour/Penguin Beach, and Hermanus Whale Tour with a stop off at Creation Vineyard for a delicious tasting and lunch (one of the best meals we had during our 2 week trip in Africa). Clive was AMAZING to say the least. He... More

Along with a group of 4, I went to Capetown for a friend's 30th birthday celebration. She found Clive's company and he was able to give us a little taste of the diverse offerings of the city. We went to Table Mountain, hiking, to the wineries, townships, etc. We went to museums to learn about the cities troubled history and... More
